PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, November 20, 1919

Dear Professor,

After the beautiful days in Vienna—despite all the calamities I had to learn of there, they were still the most beautiful of the year gone by—I began compulsory service here on the day after our arrival. Only at half steam, to be sure. Of the ten patients expected, only four wholes and two halves have reported so far. So I had time in the afternoons to occupy myself with the biological works by Schaxel and Lipschütz;1 I already sent the review of the former to Rank by way of Toni; I am enclosing here the one of the latter. I hope to have found the tone which expresses our superiority in the face of the new findings, but which at the same time shows a willingness to meet halfway; approximately the way we came to an agreement about this at one of our nice Thursday meetings.—Now it's still the yearly report's2 turn—but then I won't have an excuse anymore not to write my own biological work.3

You learn from the newspapers just as much about the political conditions in Budapest as we do. From my own observation I can add that the anti-Semitic terror rages on indefatigably; they won't allow Jewish auditors into the university, harass Jews wherever possible. The coalition government (if it comes into being) could bring a certain amelioration of these conditions, although the elections in France, the conditions in Germany, etc. make it probable that a great world reaction will set in. Our Forsyth's hopes for social progress will, I fear, not be fulfilled.

Coming back to the Vienna vacation (it is certainly the nicest thing to think of our scientific and amicable relations), I must affirm that they will remain unforgettable to me in many respects.
